Vinyasa yoga instructor Patrick Beach believes in “patience. persistence. poise.”—his all-lowercase Instagram comments underscoring his low-key temperament and humble practice. Regularly posting videos of himself mastering new positions and working out transitions between poses, Patrick (with his puppy sidekick Yokai) displays the discipline that a life devoted to yoga requires. Starting small when his mother taught him some moves on their kitchen floor a decade ago, Patrick is now a global ambassador of yoga, teaching workshops around the world, and even partnering in 2016 with H&M to create #HMSport videos showing how yoga is for everyone.
